Just wondering if WoWS has given any thoughts to a subclass of DDs like the Destroyer escorts, frigates, and corvettes that were mass produced during WW2?

The question is how much better would these ships be over the basic Destroyer's that are already in the game, historically DE's (or frigates as the RN called them) were a cheaper mass-produced anti-submarine escort, they were typically smaller, slower and has less firepower than standard Destroyers, would they actually add anything new to the game?

Considering what they had to do to destroyers to make them viable, escort vessels would be unrecognisable. Otherwise they wouldn't last 5 seconds against a larger ship.

DEs and Corvettes were much smaller then DDs, with a weaker armament, 3in vs 5in in the case of US ships.

 

The only way I could possibly see them in game, is some kind of Convoy escort mode, where the Submarines attack a convoy of ships, and the DDs and DE/Corvettes try to protect them convoy.
